Create your Ideal
Private Practice

I Want therapists to thrive 

I help therapists create and run life-enhancing, sustainable, and financially thriving private practices.

Why? Because I love the work we do as therapists. It is valuable and there needs to be more of it in the world.

AND I want our careers to be emotionally, mentally, and financially sustainable.

Who I work With

Therapists who want to create a private Practice

Are you thinking of starting a private practice? Are you trying to decide when to take the leap? 

I work with therapists who want to create a private practice that supports their financial, time, energy, and soul needs. I'm talking about a practice that is with your ideal clients, with your ideal schedule, and your ideal income. We aren't taught how to do this in grad school. It can feel scary and overwhelming to venture out. I am here to help.

I'll tailor your consultation to what you need. Some of the things I can help you do:
  • Determine your fee that fits YOUR needs

  • Create a plan for concluding with your existing job

  • Resolve money mindset concerns ("How can I be social justice minded AND charge premium fees?)

  • Set your ideal weekly schedule 

  • Find your niche

  • Select practice software

  • Review necessary business paperwork (LLC, EIN, etc.)

  • Work through all the fear that comes up in the process

Therapists who run a private practice and feel burnt out

Are you running a private practice and realize you're exhausted, it's not what you thought it would be, and you're considering quitting?

I want to help. Why? Because I've been there. In less than a year, I grew my practice to $10,000/mo and 25+ clients a week. But I was exhausted.  And questioning if I really wanted to be a therapist. I had recreated the grind culture and oppressive systems I had sought to escape.  

Empowered therapist

I took stock and made changes. MASSIVE changes. I increased my fees. I honored my ideal schedule (12 clients MAX a week, M-TH). I shifted from seeing adolescents to adults only. I implemented a no-cancellation policy. And so much more. AND IT FEELS AMAZING.

I want to help other therapists do the same. 

I tailor your consultation time to your needs. Some of the things I can help you do: 

  • Determine your fee that fits YOUR needs

  • Raise your fee with existing clients

  • Resolve money mindset concerns ("How can I be social justice minded AND charge premium fees?)

  • Implement a cancellation policy or no cancellation policy 

  • Shift to your ideal weekly schedule

  • Tailor your practice to your ideal client population

How it works

Determine what you want

Writing business goals

Before you reach out, write down what you want. What would your ideal practice look like? What is or isn't working for you? What would you like to get out of us working together? 

Make sure I'm for you

If you're looking for someone to give you a cookie cutter approach ("Five steps to building a private practice"), then I'm not for you. I'm here to help you create YOUR ideal practice. I'll listen to what you want to build, ask deep questions, and help you create a step-by-step plan to make it happen. 

You can also read my essays about running a thriving private practice to see if my vision, values, and passion align with you.

Schedule a Consultation

You can schedule a 60 min business consultation here.


Most individuals find one hour is enough to provide the clarity and vision they need to move forward. You are always welcome to schedule more time in the future if needed.



The cost of business consultation is $250/60 min. 

Sounds like a lot? 

It used to sound like a lot to me, too. That was when I was running myself ragged, trying to serve and help everyone possible. Another way is possible, and I want that for you too. Where YOU are nourished emotionally, energetically, and financially. My therapy fees and business consultation fees align with my values, energy capacity, needs, and dreams. My fee reflects the skill, life experience, education, and insight I will provide YOU. I want you to feel this strongly about your business. I offer business consultation to get you there.
